Ageism in the workplace may be difficult to identify

Workplace discrimination in California takes many forms, and ageism is among the hardest to spot. With Baby Boomers working alongside Gen Xers and Millennials in today's workforce, and with complex anti-discrimination rules and regulations on the books, sensitivity to ageism is more important now than ever. The ways opportunities are offered, the specifics of employee handbooks, the working environment and the business website may all present clues as to how older employees are viewed at a given organization.

Women file discrimination lawsuit against Google in California

Three women have filed a lawsuit in a California court naming tech giant Google as a defendant, claiming a discriminatory pattern of treatment against female employees. They allege, among other things, that Google has systematically paid female workers at lower rates than males performing comparable work.

EEOC and DOJ take separate stances on workplace discrimination

California residents may remember that the Department of Justice declared in July 2017 that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 doesn't protect against workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation. This was a departure from the views of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission . At the time, this split was considered to be unusual. This is because both agencies are tasked with defending the civil rights of workers.

How natural disasters affect FLSA and FMLA

Natural disasters such as Hurricane Harvey may raise issues between some employees and employers regarding the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act. If a person is on FMLA leave when a natural disaster occurs that results in the employer having to close the premises, that person generally cannot have the leave docked for those hours of closure.
